Malatavie with Children Action

Created 20 years ago, after an unprecedented collaboration between the HUG and the foundation Children Action, our suicide prevention and treatment initiative is now called Malatavie. The new name is intended to increase the visibility of this crisis unit and make it easier for young people and those around them to remember.
